Ohio H.S. Students Defied Atheists By Reciting A Prayer

East Liverpool H.S.
Something wonderful just happened in East Liverpool, Ohio recently and it was initiated not by liberals, democrats or the atheists.

Everything was organized and carried out by the senior class of East Liverpool High School last 22 May during their graduation ceremony. Together, they decided to do something that would make national headlines.

The week before students learned they would no longer be allowed to perform "The Lord’s Prayer" – a graduation tradition dating back some 70 years.

The school district banned the song after the Freedom From Religion Foundation complained that "The Lord’s Prayer" violated the U.S. Constitution and promoted religion.”

Fearing a possible lawsuit, the district dropped the tradition – which seemed to appease the group of perpetually-offended atheists, agnostics and free-thinkers from Wisconsin.

It appeared a cherished tradition would be eradicated to satisfy the bloodlust of a bunch of out-of-town bullies. The senior class won't take this sitting down. They decided to do something about it when they gathered in the graduation room last Sunday.

They were lining up to march when some of them began talking about that long time tradition – now outlawed. The graduating class had decided to defy the Freedom From Religion Foundation.

Just after the valedictorian welcomed the crowd, the seniors stood to their feet and began committing an act of disobedience.

"Our Father which art in Heaven ..."

It was an emotional moment – a poignant example of Americans standing up for what they know to be true – for what they know to be right.

Technically, the graduation class did not break any rules. They were ordered not to sing "The Lord’s Prayer." The school district did not say anything about reciting "The Lord’s Prayer."

Clever, kids.

Meanwhile, back in Wisconsin those meddling menaces from the Freedom From Religion Foundation are muttering under the breath, "Curses, foiled again."
